Identify RG by description

There's this used RG in a local guitar shop, can't work out what model it is but I can tell you this

Japan made
Normal, non-prestige logo
Browny crimson sorta finish
Reverse headstock
Sharkfin inlays
Rosewood neck
Silver/chrome pickguard
H-S-H layout V-pickups (V7, V single, V8 I assume)
Chrome hardware
Lo-pro edge style bridge

Any ideas?

If anyone's interested in snapping it up it's in RockShack in Leeds, priced £350

Features are a mix of 450DX or LTD and 350

Re: Identify RG by description

I've seen one of those before; I can't exactly remember the nomenclature, but it MIGHT be RGR570DX. Neat guitar. that.

Is it like this one?

Re: Identify RG by description

pls make sure what is the type of the tremolo.
because there was RGR450 LTD, same thing with RG450 LTD, only with reversed headstock.
and they got all the ingredients you mentioned above, except 'lo pro edge-style' tremolo.

It was basically a dark browny/red version of that with a pickguard, with non-matching headstock. Must have been from same year abouts.

No 400 series ever came with a LoPro.
